winner tonight. it was devastated, as you know, by that superstorm sandy and still awaiting word how many people in the storm zone could actually show up. but we are ready to project that the winner tonight in new jersey is president obama, george. >> so we still see the north is going to president obama, the south is going to governor romney. so far just about everything as expected right now. see the states filled in that have been called already but we'll keep our eye all night long on these big battlegrounds where the campaigns have invested so much time and energy and money. the big states that are going to tip the balance tonight, the vote continues to come in. i want to go to ohio. you see it on the map right now if we can zone in on the board. we see about 20% of the vote has now come in ohio. president obama has 59% of that so far. governor romney, 40% and jon karl, i want to go to you. so much of that lead is based on the early vote that was made before today. >> yeah, that's exactly right and, remember, i said at this time exactly four years ago, obama had a 33-point lead over
of hurricane sandy and it has disproportionately affected the philadelphia area, which is what democrats need to turn out to do well on election day. pennsylvania is not that far afield for republicans right now and if somehow they were able to win that state, you would be talking about president mitt romney. that is my one big surprise. i also think you should look at the senate race in the state because bob casey has been looking a little bit weaker than expected. tom smith is a businessman, former democrat running for the seat, who has been pulling within a few points in recent weeks. so, on the senate front that is the upset special we are looking at right now. >> tonight, watch election coverage on c-span with president obama from his headquarters in chicago and mitt romney from his headquarters -- plus key senate and house of victory and concession speeches from across the country. and throughout the night, your reaction by phone, e-mail, facebook and twitter. live coverage starts at 8:00 eastern on c-span, c-span radio and where you can also access interactive maps. find upd
. again, we are talking about a very close race. last week, sandy, the fact we spent four or five days talking about sandy and not the election clearly aided president obama. the downside of it was as pictures came out about all the suffering people were going through the initial warm response was probably eroded away. you got a sense of that in a couple of tracking polls towards the end of the election. jon: what a time for a election after a storm like that. karl rove, nobody knows the numbers better. it's good to have you on. >> thanks, jon. martha: we are with the candidates until all the votes are counted today. fox team coverage from both campaign headquarters. wind tkal goler is with the president in the president's hometown of chicago where he will await the results. we'll begin with john roberts in boston where governor romney will be watch the returns with his family and his supporters as well. jon. >> reporter: good morning to you jenna. first he's got to come home. though. he's got up early, he has had a busy job. first of all in bellemont, massachusetts voting at 8:45 this
then is, was this about the president's performance in dealing with hurricane sandy. there was a lot of speculation how this may have changed the race. governor romney was making a pitch saying i am bipartisan guy that can get things done. the storm came along, president was able to show that he could be effective and how in working with republican governor of new jersey will have to do a little more reporting but for that 9% that may have played a little bit of a role. scott john, thank you. norah, do you think sandy was a helpful octor surprise for the president? >> it appears based on some of the data that it may have been. once number of republicans hear that they're going to be angry at new jersey governor chris christie who some felt helped the president. other people said, these guys were doing their job for a lot of people who were really hurting, who lost their homes, lost their electricity for many people who died as a result of hurricane sandy. chris christie was effusive in his praise of the president. one point even praising the president for calling him and putting bru

hurricane sandy hit the northeast. stronghold for democrats that appeared destined to depress turn out for the president in some of his largest states. they said, we're just not thinking about the popular vote right now we're only focused on our battleground states. but something they're going to have to think about a lot more if these totals hold. >> pelley: thank you very much. let's switch over to jan crawford at romney headquarters in boston. certainly looking like a very different scene in boston, jan? >> reporter: it has been for the past couple hours there really has not been any good news for this crowd tonight. of course very quiet as you can imagine in this room. the questions now, of course, going to begin for the romney cam main what happened, why, for example didn't respond to some of the negative attacks over the summer allowing obama campaign to define him, particularly some of those battleground states with his work at bank capital. positions on auto industry bail out that really hurt him. people here believe, we're raising questions about that in recent weeks. when w
as likely voters. host: as he had been doing these polls, was hurricane sandy is a prize? caller: it certainly was an october surprise. it had an effect on this election. what we found from the poll is that about 7 in 10 voters approved the president's handling of the hurricane. that would be republicans and democrats. only about 15% disapproved. unlike the heavy criticism that president bush got for his handling of katrina, this became a very different situation. what has happened here, i think, are a combination of things. people saw the president at work. they saw him essentially being a good steward in a time of serious crisis. they saw the ability for him to reach across the aisle and to work with the republican governor, chris christie, the governor of new jersey. the third thing i think that came out of all of this is the sense that government has a role to play. and that in all three of those instances, good policy and good professional work probably was very good politics for the president. having said that, it is important to know that the change we have seen in our own
